…morning light is magic…

Sprinting Moorhen

Made my first trip back to Brazos Bend State Park in a few months on Sat and found lots of fog but no sun.  I love when it is foggy but it helps to have the sun shining through it.  Saturday was just fog and clouds.  Tried to make the best of it by sitting on my keester for about 1.5 hrs along the bank at 40 acre lake.  Worked on getting some slow shutter speed shots of Coots as they ran by and ended up finding this enthusiastic Moorhen as well.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens, no flash

  1. I was planning on going Saturday or Sunday until I saw the weather reports about cloud cover early in the am. Friday was a precursor to the weekend and the light looked bad Friday morning until late.

    I had the same thought about needing the sun coupled with the fog to make it work. Must be why I decided to sleep in.

  2. It ended up being fun sun or no sun. Should have come out and played.
